Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Mentor, teacher, guide, friend—a coach is all of these and more. The new book #COACHING tweet Book01 distills decades of experience coaching CEOs into practical advice on coaching.
#COACHING tweet Book01 is available on Amazon or at http://www.happyabout.com/thinkaha/coachingtweet01.php
Author Sterling Lanier sees coaching as an art form with which to inspire, encourage, and motivate people. It’s done by asking thoughtful and thought-provoking questions and helping to set ambitious but realistic goals and action plans. It is a journey of self-discovery, as much for the coach as for the person being coached.
“#COACHING tweet Book01 is engaging, fun, and … loaded with sage advice and hits you in the head, the heart, and the soul. Read a page or two every day, clear your mind, and remember that often it is more important to know the question to ask than have the answer to give,” says Bernard Lauper, CEO of MacCorkle Insurance Services.
Sterling hopes coaching will replace the traditional performance review that is often an excuse to criticize, not motivate employees. He calls most reviews, "a mound of criticism sandwiched between two thin slices of praise." Instead, as Sterling shares with us, coaching should consist of a series of frequent dialogues between employee and manager.
This book lays out the essentials of coaching: the essence of being a coach, coaching practices, power questions that lead to self discovery, and the power of purpose, goals, and accountability.
In #COACHING tweet Book01, get bite-sized insights on the power, practices, and sheer joy of coaching. Written in the popular tweet format, this book is easy to read. More importantly, it makes it easy to apply the insights learned immediately to improve both work and life. Coaching is not just for business. Anyone can be a coach for someone—for a friend, a colleague, a business associate, even a family member or a child. #COACHING tweet sets you on the path to being a successful coach—here and now.
#COACHING tweet Book01 is part of the THINKaha series whose 100-page books contain 140 well-thought-out quotes (tweets/ahas).
